Armand Hekimian

"There is always that moment in life where we become ourselves. That moment where our guard is brought down. And for a tiny moment, we let go. Things unwind and we appear as we are: vulnerable, proud or just profoundly happy." - Armand Hekimian 1971-2012 

We would like to invite Armand's families, friends and colleagues from anywhere in the world to pay their memorial tributes on this website, so we can show later to his own family how much Armand was appreciated, respected, generous and a great and wonderful person to be with.

"Beatrice,

I too am lost for words over this terrible news. We are shocked and it has not yet registered with me. I spent 14 great years with him -  work and socially. He is one of a kind. I got close to him in a way i have never got close to anyone as a friend. He will always be with us."

Ce message pour exprimer notre chagrin profond.

When I think of Armand I see those BIG blue eyes & that zest for life.
All of us who knew him were very lucky to have had the opportunity, such people are so rare.

"Beatrice,
It was a great experience working with Armand for about 10yrs. Armand believed that whatever is what doing by him is what doing well and with all his passion. He is a good and compassionate friend. May his soul rest in peace. "Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord be with you & your children. Amen."

"Beatrice,
You and I have never met, but I worked with Armand at AME in Plano. Armand and I kept in touch from time to time. He was a great person and a friend. He had a great sense of humor and always made me laugh. One thing for sure it was clear that he loved his family. I'm going to miss him, but I know he's with God now. May God Bless you"

"Chère Béatrice, Toutes nos pensées & prières vont vers toi et tes enfants.  Armand a toujours été près de nos coeurs malgré la distance.  Sa gentillesse, sa disponibilité et son art resteront gravé dans nos mémoires.  Je me rapellerai toujours le w-e qu'il a passé chez nous à Dallas lorsque la glace bloquait toute circulation.  Bon bon courage.

"Beatrice,
Armand was the most passionate peron in everything he did.  He lived life with a smile on his face at all times.  I was honored to work with him for almost 14 years, and I always learned new things from him.  Monica and I were shocked and saddened by the news of his death.  If there is anything you need, never hesitate to ask."
